iQOO could be all set to debut the iQOO Neo 9 Pro in the Indian market, shortly after its launch in China. Here is what we know so far.

iQOO has built a reputation for launching performance-oriented smartphones that offer good value for money. The company appears all set to double down on this habit with its newest addition to the Neo lineup, the iQOO Neo 9 Pro. Notably, there are rumblings that this smartphone could soon become available in India as well.

While the iQOO Neo 9 Pro and its counterpart, the Neo 9, are set to launch in China on December 27, as per tipster and tech YouTuber Mukul Sharma, the India debut could follow suit in January, next month.

Sharma has also spilled the beans about the specifications, mentioning that the Indian variant of the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which was Qualcomm’s flagship chipset before the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

Additionally, Sharma confirmed that the phone will be available in a dual tone red and white colourway with a textured finish on the back.

It’s worth noting that the Chinese variant of the same device will come with a MediaTek Dimensity 9300 chipset, suggesting that iQOO might create differentiation for the Indian market.

Regarding the rest of the specifications, the device is expected to feature a large 6.78-inch OLED panel with a 144Hz refresh rate. It will come with a dual rear camera setup consisting of the 50-megapixel Sony IMX 920 as the main sensor and another 50-megapixel ultra-wide unit. A 16-megapixel front-facing selfie shooter is also expected. Moreover, it could ship with Android 14 out of the box.
